Ironi-tronica Pop?

Very little's know about Fol Chen, who provide today's Song of The Week, 'Cable TV,' a studiedly faux cheesy come-on delivered in an ironically deadpan tone, wth a melody that plink-plunks along with a delicious midtempo synth groove.  I call this 'ironi-tronica'

I think they're six art students from Highland Park, CA, five guys and one gal. Their videos abound in animation.

 I discovered this song on Pitchfork's Forkcast, a endless stream of the musical new and noteworthy...

Without further ado, the "Cable TV" clip that brought Fol Chen to my attention....

Their previous two videos brilliant animation, good music, but not the instantly catchy honey cone that is "Cable TV"...  Here's "No Wedding Cake":

And "The Believers":
